737-900 vref

Recommended Posts

Hello again.I been flying the 737-900 a little lately.My question is regarding the Vref speeds.When folloving the calculated Vref speed on approach and landing,I always approach with a less deck angle nose up pitch than on the other 737,s Specially if flap 40 is required.I know the basic wing of the 900 is the same as the other NG series 737,but are there modifications to flap or slats or is the wing mounted to the fuselage at a different angle so less pitch up is required and therfor preventing tail scrapes?Comments from the PMDG team or other enthusiasts are welcome.Best regardsOla Nielsen

Not sure what you are asking. When you fly with Vref and with the correct flap setting you automatically get the correct pitch - no need to further modify this angle. The fact that 737-900 is an extra long aircraft only matters during flare and rotation - there is prescribed maximum pitch angle that you must never reach in order to avoid tail strike.
